My understanding is that IGZO beats it on power. It would seem that with more transistors that starts to matter. It could be my understanding is wrong, but that is my understanding.

We here don't much care about mobile. Mobile has plenty
of great screens -- LCD and
OLED. What remains unclear is whether OLED is really meaningfully better on mobile. When the IGZO-based LCDs hit mobile it may, in fact, be the other way around.

Totally fair point.
They were never able to mass produce anything
Or, really, produce anything at all.
However, the announcements are intended to make the companies LG look innovative in the volatile and perception-driven world of consumer electronics, and do not reflect the current state of the technology...
Constantly showing something and promising to ship it and not shipping it is making one look less innovative and more phony, it seems to me.

See Exhibit A, Sony, Super Phony. Lots of demos over the years, few products of any import.

And they probably will.
So why are they continuing such a massive global marketing campaign on a product that they clearly must have known that they were not going to be able to ship in any worthwhile numbers?
Perhaps they have figured out a very clever way to get a lot of great media coverage, to enhance their Brand Name reputation, without having to earn it, since their Plasma and LCD models are rated as being average at best. What they have been doing with the shows that they have staged at events like the Monaco Grand Prix etc. has garnered them a lot of great media publicity. They even paid for all of HDGuru's travel costs to have him fly over and cover the Monaco Event, even though he still has not been able to test one, or go see one in a store, all these many months later.
Yeah, this has long ago stopped making sense to me.
It reminds me of what Automakers have done for many years at their Auto Shows, when they demonstrate concept cars that they have no intention of ever producing, but still garner a lot of free TV and press favorable coverage for free. I see no reason to give any credence to forward looking statements from LG from here on out, until they at least start shipping more than a tiny token amount of OLED TV units. Look to Panasonic as the company that has a track record of not over promising ahead of time, but have made steady improvements over the years on their Plasma sets, something LG has not done. LG are behaving more like Carnival Barkers than anything else these days.
Well put. I've been dismissing the demos for quite some time (and the promises as well). That's why I keep bringing up the lack of evidence of a single delivery anywhere. In this day and age of instant information, if anyone had the TV, you'd think we'd know about it.
